[Chimera-users] running chimera on FC20

We have found, for Chimera, that the proprietary graphics drivers from 
AMD and NVIDIA have less issues that the open source drivers.  So I'd 
recommend switching to a proprietary driver, if you're not using one 
already.  If you have Intel graphics, then updating the graphics driver 
often means that you need to update your whole system.  So in that case,
try FC21 alpha.

     HTH,
